Have you always wanted to go on an outdoor adventure and explore how awesome nature is? If you are still deciding whether or not you should embark on this exciting trip, then maybe you should read our story for today about a cat and dog exploring the great outdoors together with their human parents – who happened to be avid hikers! And by the way, this pet duo also have plenty of adorable photos together that will surely encourage you, even more, to head to your first outdoor trip.
Avid hikers Cynthia Bennet and her boyfriend adopted Henry the dog back in 2014. The golden retriever mix was only 3 weeks old that time but Cynthia and her boyfriend introduced him right away from their hiking trip.
“I think we only had him for three days when we took him on our first hike,” Bennett told The Dodo. “He found the steepest, tallest rock around, and he ran up to the top of it to look over the edge.”
Just a few months ago, this outdoor-loving couple decided to add another member in the pack, and after searching for five months, they finally found the perfect addition to their family – a Siamese mix kitten which they named Baloo. And it did not take long before Baloo started going on their hiking trips together. And not just that, surprisingly, Henry and Baloo instantly clicked and they became inseparable – all Baloo wanted was to play and snuggle with Henry.
“I get a lot of questions about how we got him used to it. But he really loves it. He really wants to go outside,” Bennett said. “If I touch Henry’s leash, [Baloo] will start screaming at the door.”
These cat and dog are totally making us jealous of their hiking accomplishments. Maybe it’s now time to go hiking together with our furkids!
